KUALA LUMPUR – The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre will donate 5% of the proceeds from its Ramadan buka puasa (breaking of fast) offerings to designated charities that the venue supports, in line with its vision of ‘Embracing The Joy of Giving In The Month of Ramadan’ this year.
This year’s menu features a fusion of traditional and modern dishes together with Ramadan must-haves such as bukhara Ramadan served with gulai kawah daging campur bersama kedondong (beef curry cooked with ambarella), gulai kawah tulang rusuk kambing bersama ubi kentang (lamb rib curry with potato), and gulai kawah ayam kampung bersama pisang muda lemak manis (chicken curry cooked with young sweet banana); ayam kampong masak cencaluk (free range chicken cooked with fermented krill and comdiments); lemak asam telur itik bersama sayur munggai (duck egg cooked in coconut gravy); tembosa (puffs) and ubi getok (braised tapioca); ocean prawns with durian; and Portuguese-style banana leaf grilled seafood, to name a few.
“We are excited about introducing our interactive ‘contemporary bazaar’ concept to guests, which enhances the diverse array of delicious dishes that are being specially prepared by our 52 award-winning chefs. This Ramadan, diners at our buka puasa will enjoy an experience to remember with the creation of a casual festive ambience involving our popular ‘Chef Action Stations’ fashioned as classic roadside stalls where our chefs will cook authentic ‘street food’ dishes like Thai BBQ, steamboat, Penang char kuey teow and chicken and beef satay,” said Hisham Bin Jaafar, the Centre’s Executive Chef.
The Centre also offers Ramadan guests a designated prayer room, prayer mats, sandals, on-site ablution facility and an Imam to lead the congregation during Maghrib, Isya’ and Tarawih prayers, allowing Muslims to comfortably perform their religious duties while breaking their fast, as well as for all diners to replenish their energy with ease in a festive setting.
“With all five of the Centre’s kitchens; Chinese, Western, Cold, Pastry and Malay, certified halal by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM), our Muslim guests are able to enjoy their meal with complete peace of mind. This Ramadan, we continue to build on our commitment to sustainability with 70% locally sourced produce and ingredients,” added Chef Hisham.
Diners can be assured of service excellence and sumptuous five-star cuisine at the Centre’s public buka puasa, which is affordably priced at RM150 nett per person and is available for bookings on weekdays between 8 until 31 May 2019. The Centre also has a 10% early bird discount for all public buka puasa bookings made before 30 April 2019. So, make sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
The Centre is offering great value for its corporate buka puasa promotion (for 100 persons and above), which will be available daily throughout Ramadan, from RM128 nett per person. With two customisable menu choices – the delightful Ramadan Al-Mubarak and the tantalising Ramadan Al-Kareem – clients have the option to personalise them with various ‘Chef Action Station’ add-ons.
“In addition to hosting classic Ramadan dishes, both the corporate and public buka puasa menus offer contemporary and international choices for diners looking for something a little different. Dishes include Arab minced beef pita kebab, Japanese teriyaki and selection of sushi, roasted fish tikka, Hainanese chicken rice and our famous roasted Harissa whole lamb served with mint sauce and condiments,” Chef Hisham concluded.
